Nano-porous structures: supercapacitors and sensors

We develop innovative nano-porous materials and assemblies employed in varied sensing, optical, and electronic applications. Specifically, we introduced technologies for creating conductive gold nanopatterns through self-reduction of Au-thiocyanate. We have demonstrated new porous electrodes and supercapacitors for high frequency applications and high power/energy densities. Diverse sensor designs, operating through optical and capacitive transduction mechanisms, have been developed.
